Broadband satellite is now available via satellite,and it doesnt cost the Earth,in fact a particular Cornish village obtains broadband via satellite along with its tv service,where before even dial up was a problem.
The elderly or those of a techno phobia nature do steer well clear of the internet,that is until they realize the communication benefits.
Some elderly people for instance have family and relatives in remote countries who they might see for long periods,the oidd brief telephone call that is expensive.
Broadband internet allows video real time communication and is free apart from the monthly cost,having the internet doesn't always mean surfing it and twittering to high heaven just keeping in touch is just as important.
So if you have some body who would like broadband let us know .....satellite is the answer.
